If you were around during the sixties, you will recognize Mr Gene Wilder as one of the best actors of that time. His exuberant and witty nature won the heart of many, for his portrayal in movies such as Armstrong circle theatre, Bonnie and Clyde, Blazing saddles, Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory, Richard Pryor : Silver Streak (1976), Stir Crazy (1980), See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989), and Another You (1991).
He was also writer/novelist mostly famous for his books Kiss Me Like a Stranger: My Search for Love and Art ; a collection of stories, What Is This Thing Called Love? (2010); and the novels My French Whore (2007), The Woman Who Wouldn’t (2008) and
Something to Remember You By (2013).
Samuel L. Jackson, Matt Bomer and other celebrities have sent their remorse on the death and wished him a happy send off to the other side.
According to our sources, he has been killed by his long battle with Alzheimer’s disease which is a progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age, due to generalized degeneration of the brain. It is the most common cause of premature senility.
He was a true legend may his soul rest in peace.
Here are some of his greatest quotes
“So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you.” – Willy Wonka ( Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory )
“What did you expect? ‘Welcome, sonny’? ‘Make yourself at home’? ‘Marry my daughter’? You’ve got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons.” — Jim (Blazing Saddles)
“Invention, my dear friends, is 93 percent perspiration, 6 percent electricity, 4 percent evaporation and 2 percent butterscotch ripple.” — Willy Wonka ( Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory )
